Character Counts!

Time is moving fast and we are already in October!

Our students are working hard and we are proud to see how they grow both in their knowledge and in their personalities.

Something we feel is very important besides learning subject knowledge is to also develop as a person. Kindness and caring are integral to a positive school community. We are working hard to foster this type of environment in school by rewarding students who show exemplary behaviour towards others through the use of Pillar Tickets.
The Pillar tickets are connected to Character Counts, which is a positive character program we work with here at school. 
We are so happy to say that we have given out over 2500 tickets in the first month alone! This means that staff have witnessed at least this many individual acts of outstanding behaviour by our students and we could not be more proud of them.

Welcome back!

Almost a month has already passed of this new academic year and we have many new adventures to look forward to!

We have had a very positive start of the year and we are focusing on buidling strong bonds between the students in each class.
Positive relationships and feeling secure in school is something we value and work hard to maintain.
We also value cooperation between guardians and school, never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Our students well being is our priority and good communication between school and home is key.

This year we have ISS  providing our school lunches. They aim at having 30% ecological food and we can already see that the quality of food has improved. We strive to provide a healthy and tasty lunch for all our students here at IES Krokslätt.

We are looking forward to this academic year!

Best regards,
Desirée Ekendahl

We wish you a great Summer!

Dear students and guardians,

The team at IES Krokslätt wants to wish you all a great summer holiday and we look forward greeting you at school on August 20th. It has been a great year and last week our principal Mr. Waddington received many happy wishes from students and amongst these we would like to share this one with all of you.

With that, take care and see you all in August!

Week 23

We are getting close to the end of year. Our students and staff are working hard and showing real grit to accomplish the final details before the well desevered Summer hoilday. 

This academic year of 2017-2018 has been our strongest ever. Our academic results have improved as well as our overall quality. I am proud to say that we now consider ourselves to be one of Gothenburg´s best compulary schools. 

Next week our dear students and staff will be of on field trips and other fun activities. This is an appreciated tradition at IES Krokslätt. Next Friday on June 15th we celebrate the End of School ceremony at Lorensbergsteatern. I look forward seeing all our students and guardians at this beautiful venue.

Week 19

As a principal I am very pleased after going through our survey results in which all stakeholders of the school have offered us their feedback. Students, guardians and staff clearly share the same vision of the school and the understanding of the IES Ethos. As a principal I sleep well at night knowing that our students and guardians feel that there is a safe and orderly working environment in the school and that we all excell with high academic expectations.

Best regards,

I very humble and proud principal
